Baw Baw is rather isolated per se Moe does have some accomodation and less that 35-40 minute drive up to Ba Baw

I haven't been to Mt Buffalo in winter but I imagine it would be equally beautiful with snow. Perhaps someone local to there can say how much snow there is?

Graham there is a resort on Mt Buffalo or alternatively stay in Bright. In winter there is enough for chairlifts and short ski runs but not now...
